This time around...

I really surprised myself with this Label Tulip kit! It is chock full o' Pink Paislee, which made me worry a little that I wouldn't be able to come up with anything insanely cool or fresh. Obviously I love, love, love Pink Paislee... but, I DO work with it a lot. ;0) Usually, my LT kits are a chance for me to dip my hands into a pool of supplies that offer a break from what I'm usually working with. So, I made it my own personal challenge this month to take all those pretty Pink Paislee goodies, mix 'em up with the rest of the kit, and come up with some things that were really outside the box. And, I actually ended up with some pages that I adore!



This month, we are featuring a mini-book project kit designed by our reigning Tulip Girl technique queen, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. The products in this kit, Metropolis in Bloom, will blow your mind with the endless creative possibilities! Instead of a mini-book, I was inspired to use one of the chipboard buildings to create my own little city scene layout. I had the best time figuring out ways to turn the products into pieces of a picture... metal gears for flowers, the letterpress card for the sun, the fabric and trim for a dress, etc. See what other items you can spot from this month's kit that were turned into part of this city scene:



Our challenge for April was to come up with a layout, card, or project that was in a monochromatic color scheme. Here is my interpretation:



And, finally, our Member Gallery lift for this month was from the fabulous Anna Sigga! Here is her original page:



And, this is my spin on it:



This month's kit ended up being one of my favorites, and I hope you'll agree! Thanks for checking out my work this month, and don't forget to take a peek at the gallery that includes the debut work of our 4 new, insanely talented, Tulip Girls!
